    I tried to upload FLV video,the size was ok and everything ,used the "upload video" button and what it did is just crunched the video into a link with the video's name and not showing a player on the post-
    do you guys know what I mean?
    I just want to make it like a post with a video ON IT so what should I do?

    I am not sure about hosting in your own site,but that would eat the bandwith and might slow down the site!

    IMO youtube is always dependable!

    it depends on what content you wanna show,copyright issues are really issues [for example]
    and if a competitor decides to flag your vids what should you do? upload and track everyday?
    there must be a plugin for wordpress

    Most people, for seo purposes..dont bother to upload their own videos to their web site anymore..I did it for years...
    If you get traffic to the site in the first place..embedding the video will normally keep your visitors on site anyway.
    And..you will get traffic to your site from youtube anyway...
    And..you will can get killed on bandwidth costs by your host..and it will stream better, most of the time from yTube anyway..


    it depends on what content you wanna show,copyright issues are really issues [for example]

    Huh..
    What..you embedding someone else`s video on your site is a "copyright" issue.?
    Not really..
    You downloading someone`s material and hiding it by uploading it to your site..yes that would be a possible copyright issue.
    Or someone using your material from ytube breaking your "copyright"?


    and if a competitor decides to flag your vids what should you do?

    I realise this is all new for you..but unless you are ripping off other peoples videos..how in the hell are you going to get flagged..
    And..I do rip other peoples videos..watermark them..upload them..most are still sitting there .:p
    So..I assume you are trying to steal other peoples content and hide it on your site.. ???


    upload and track everyday?

    Which you can do on free video hosts...but..Unless you are big name guru..or..an affiliate site like clickbank seller etc..99% of people for seo purposes dont do what you are trying to do..thats a pretty good hint why your idea is not really a good idea..but go ahead if you must..:D
